8th International Mediterranean Contest - Turkey

Mediterranean catchment which is the meeting point of Asia, Europe and Africa has the characteristic to be a cradle of the cultures that constitute contemporary world civilization. Mediterranean is wholly a separate world .
Mediterranean had been witness to chipping of the stone, cultivation of soil, working with iron, invention of the writing, production of the glass, usage of the money, beginning of the commerce, construction of the temples, discovery of the stars and the tone of the music which makes the human being a person. Mediterranean is a history itself. If tourism has a history, it begins from the Mediterranean because Mediterranean is also the center of tourism. Therefore, "tourism in Mediterranean" is the subject of this contest. Our call is to all cartoonists of the world: “Draw, draw the tourism in Mediterranean”.
